A short drama about the tragic consequences of an all too typical jealous spat between a couple - with a very dark twist at the end.
Jealousy is a phenomena that no society has ever dealt with successfully. And, in that sense it is an eternal problem.
Our film looks at two of the most enduring characteristics of jealousy - namely, the impulse to 'just have a bit of fun' which is often followed by a partner's impulse to over react.
Given that we are all social creatures that need the stimulation of others, our film looks at the often tragic consequences of an all too typical jealous spat between a couple - where the viewer is left undecided as to how things could have been handled differently.
Sadly, it is a story to which just about everyone will relate - as it seems to be a part of our human condition.
KALKI KOECHLIN & GULSHAN DEVAIAH are two brilliant actors from India. They have both kindly agreed to do this free of charge. However, the cost of their accommodation and travel fees will be taken from the budget.
They are widely known from films like 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' and 'That Girl in Yellow Boots'.
Nandu is one of the best DP's in Delhi, India. He will be operating the camera and lighting.
Also make up artist Virginia Holmes who worked on 'Life of Pi'
Vikram Gupta will be acting as Line producer and 1st AD on this set, he is highly experienced in his field.
All together this is an extremely competent crew and I'm very privileged to have them on board and with no fee.
We are raising funds to make a 12 minute short film written and directed by Ahmed Roy and starring famous actors Kalki Koechlin and Gulshan Devaiah. The funds will help go towards the cast and crew's daily meals, transportation, equipment and the locations we will shoot in.
There will be an elaborate car crash scene and a police/ambulance presence will also be featured in the film. This will take up a significant chunk from the total budget.
The locations will include an apartment, a hospital and a main street.
To be working with such a talented actors of such high demand is a onetime opportunity for us and so we will strive to live up to their and you're expectations in executing this project. The crew is a very determined and competent team and so the money will be in safe hands.
Please help us to bring this project to life by pledging as much as you can. We hope that you will play a part in helping our dreams come true and we hope to inspire people to do the same.

If there is one possible setback that may occur, it's that the car crash scene may be too difficult or too expensive to pull off to the level of quality we hope to achieve.
If this is the case, we have already reviewed other options to have a similar effect such as CGI or green screen technology.
Apart from that - with every film there are always unforeseen circumstances, but with determination and experience you adapt to them and power through to make you're vision come to life.
